RE: Will you buy $10 of Hive with me?

in LeoFinance3 months ago

As a more seasoned Hive user, I'm beginning to shift my thoughts on author rewards. I love this idea but I've seen it before. I think this is an awesome message, but I also am starting to see large hive accounts with the same content and to me it kind of seems like people are milking hive. Maybe declining rewards is a good way to handle non-fresh content or for content you've published elsewhere to bring to hive, because that takes some courage, and reposts of something like this would be a great candidate. You're popular and I think this message does bring value to hive. But also you would help set an example of declining rewards for non-fresh content in order to keep the message alive.

Another suggestion might be what Acidyo does and pay the rewards to the curators.

Just my two cents. I've been removing auto-votes on most accounts I see not posting quality content or fresh ideas because I'd rather reward more effort. I really do enjoy seeing well written posts on Hive. But, there is little accountability on Hive to manage these types of things more efficiently, so in the interim we may be able to establish some better principles.

Sort:  

I very rarely post similar content, I post unique content on a daily basis.

Another suggestion might be what Acidyo does and pay the rewards to the curators.

I am not a fan of this at all, I believe 50/50 split is good, people do not appreciate the value stakeholders bring but I don't agree on making curation even more than 50%. Especially when authors can set it, it becomes a race to the bottom where authors will give up more and more of their rewards to try to get larger votes. It will directly influence voting without regard to quality and content.

I think this is an awesome message, but I also am starting to see large hive accounts with the same content and to me it kind of seems like people are milking hive.

I don't post content anyone else does, and I've posted this similar message like 3-4 times in the last 3 years I have been here. If you look through my content, it isn't remotely similar to my own or others outside of this series of posts I did 3-4 times.

Sorry I'm not accusing you as a whole, I guess I'm accusing this post of it, yea. I know you post great stuff and I got some really good ideas from you about one post you made, people want to learn from your posts. I learn a ton. I've just been seeing whale accounts posts a single photo because they know they have auto-votes. I'd like to see better discipline about that, I'd prefer to keep auto-votes on because it's easier but I hate to see it abused. I've been trying to get better about it myself too.

From the sounds of it I know it wasn't your intent to "milk hive" but it's how it can be perceived. Since you're a hive witness, you set a huge example.

From the comment on Acidyo, I think that that would be great for this post only and others like it from any author. People should re-post stuff with a valuable message, but also there is nothing to stop you from posting this same thing every week, right? Then I think you would agree it would definitely been seen and viewed as milking hive.

Dude let's talk in DM

[redacted] 😝

To clarify; this message is solely around reports of the exact same content, no matter how few. I think, in principle any/all re-posts should have rewards declined or rewards paid to people who comment, that's a great idea imho.

p.s. I think you're a great witness Marky. I voted for you! Can we be friends? Even if we do agree to disagree, I still like you :) no homo (*said in a non-homophobic way)

I get you, and I don't disagree.
I make it a point to not just repeat posts or post repetitive auto posts like a lot of whales and witnesses do.
